39 minutes ago @ San Francisco Bay View - Rwanda: Free Victoire!... · 0 replies · +1 points

You make a good point, BK, regarding Victoire, Dr. King, and Patrice Lumumba. If Victoire Ingabire were ever to be the President of Rwanda, she would become the commander of an army, so she must have given that some thought. I stress this point in part because the charges that Victoire was engaged in terrorism were so ridiculous. Yesterday I learned that Amnesty International refuses to make her a prisoner of conscience and take up her case because she's charged with terrorism.

Once again, I did not mean to question Lumumba's choices and perhaps I am not remembering his history correctly. I am not a Lumumba scholar.

To identify what is Black and African about Victoire's struggle certainly sounds right to me, and for that, I will step aside.

I'm sure not. But if you think so, go ahead and leave them again.

Calling people names is not an effective argument or refutation of anything.

The Bay View almost never scrubs comments. I have only requested one comment scrub in nearly 7 years of writing for them, and that was because it was nothing but a personal insult.

I'd like to know who organized and funded this, not for any negative reason but just because it seems it should be part of the story.

And do you believe the FDLR killed millions of people in the DRC?

Seamus, you're kind of an interesting character. Seems to me that you frequently show up here to defend various California police departments as well.

He didn't appear at Sacramento State, but his delegation did. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201213...
